#VeganHour Live: Listen
Listen back to #VeganHour Live
This is what happened on April 15th when Melissa “Ms Cupcake” Morgan and I went live on Resonance 104.4FM during #VeganHour. Our conversation ran from accidentally vegan Beef and Tomato Flavour Pot Noodles to running vegan businesses. Vegan registered dietitian Marty Davey even phoned in to answer questions that had come up on Twitter.

Kickstarting History: 77% reached, 7 days left
I’m humbled by the support for the Kickstarter campaign to crowdfund Vegetarianism: The Story So Far. With just seven days left, it’s 77% funded. It’s nearly there – but if it doesn’t hit the target, it does not get funded.
Please go to the Kickstarter page to discover some amazing rewards. It’s also being heavily featured in other vegan blogs and podcasts – from Go Vegan with Bob Linden to the Jewish Vegetarian Society. So please have a look at the Kickstarter video, read more about the project and help make history. Or, as Tanya from Progressive Kitch podcast puts it: know your roots.

Kickstart the Radio History of Vegetarianism
Researching the history of vegetarianism, I quickly realised it was a much bigger and more exciting story than could fit into a couple of episodes. It needs a full on series, of at least ten episodes, full of interesting characters and amazing twists. To tell it properly is a much bigger project than The Vegan Option has ever done before. I can’t do it without you.
So, for the first time, I’m offering you the chance to get financially involved by backing Vegetarianism: The Story So Far on Kickstarter. I’m offering some great thank you gifts – such as a postcard from one of the places where the story unfolded. Go to the project page to discover more, watch the video (with a glimpse of what the Vegan Option “studio” actually looks like), and help make history.
If this is funded, it will be a resource for vegetarians, vegans, and curious omnivores for many years. So it would be a pity if it wasn’t.
Veganism in Politics: Netherlands and Australia
This week, Resonance 104.4FM broadcast my interviews with the UK’s 3 vegan MPs. In the broadcast, I mentioned two vegan lawmakers who were missed out in the original internet radio shows: Marianne Thieme and Lee Rhiannon. Read More…
